in 1967, where i met steve schneider who was a student at that time. and, if i could just say a couple words about steve, it's kind of -- it's ironic that i'm getting the steve schneider award because we could not have been more opposite.

today, and what is next is the big question. steve harrigan is streaming live from cairo with more. steve. >> reporter: we are ten days away from a admonition thal vote, a vote on the new draft constitution. we are seeing both sides really jocking for position and trying to demonstrate what power they have by the numbers of people they can bring out into the streets. yesterday for the first time last night we saw the opposition protestors, people who want to drive president morsi from office really go on the offensive. they marched through the presidential palace. they broke through steel gates and barbed wire, they painted graffiti on the walls of the compound. they did not try to over take those walls go into the compound itself where of course there are heavily armed guards. police continued to retreat throughout the demonstration last night and even though it seemed like there was chaos on the streets there were no reports of any serious injuries during that process, so both sides still showing some restraint. the latest reports from the scene say large-scale protests from supp
. one of the things that steve has worked on a great deal, and i do not want to take away his thunder, a look at how americans will stay competitive -- if we look at how america will stay competitive -- i hear your phone -- [laughter] the question of whether or not a merkel be able to compete, whether we will be able to make investments, are we -- are we going to be able to have the kind of innovation that creates jobs? north of 80% of the net new jobs made in america in the last 20 years have come from start-ups. where had the talent come from? disproportionately from a first generation americans. we are very lucky particularly in northern virginia, which rivals only the silicon valley in terms of the number of tech- related startups, you look a little deeper, and a 1 1/3 of the tech startups in northern virginia had one of the co- founders or founders as a first generation american. the numbers in the valley are even higher. how do we maintain that? one is talent. i will come back to that in a moment. another piece of this which we think is very complementary and something that stev

are retired now? caller: yes. host: steve in phoenix, kind of business do you have? caller: i have a trucking company. we move products locally in the state of arizona. the fiscalw how cliff is going to affect me personally. since we cannot produce things, any company that is affected negatively, that will affect us negatively. withn't really do anything any government entities. directly speaking, i don't think it will really affect our customers, because they don't really do the kind of stuff that works with the government. they do the kind of stuff with businesses, manufacturers. the stuff that we carry does not have much to do with defense. a certain group of people say that we need to have cuts. then when the cuts there them in the face, they say not those cuts. that's the real problem. e their owns to gordon ac ox. host: scott is looking to start a business. in "politico" is this article this morning -- in "usa today" -- doc in baton rouge, louisiana, good morning it. caller: i have my own insurance agency. host: talk to us about the fiscal cliff. caller: i am kind of concerned about it.
and fundamental side with steve cortes. good to see you both. one has been a stellar performer and the other not so much. what do you like right now? >> bill, you just summed it up. the news came out over the weekend and the market is telling you what you should believe in. netflix is up 1% and amazon down 3.5%. look at the chart in amazon, you can see it's been showing us this over the last four months. amazon put a high in at 261. about eight days ago tried to take out that high and couldn't do it. it put in a double top. that's a sign of a -- you know, of a failure. you have a stock like amazon who basically -- the stock failed at 261 and now we have a 20-day moving average which it broke through and 209-day moving average, the last time it broke through the 20-day moving average it fell 13%. now we look over at netflix, that's a totally different story, right you? said it was a dog. it bottomed out at $54 and broke above its 20-day moving average and stayed above its 20-day moving average for the last four weeks. if it stays above its $20 moving average we're going to long this. our pric
and state rights outside of the question. >> prisoner steve, the nitze fusion proclamation committed to put an end to all the discussion and any existing remnants of slavery? >> it didn't. it was a very important moment because the united states, the lincoln administration exercising his power as commander-in-chief, it is a war measure, the abolished slavery without compensation to the owners, this is new. the northern states abolished slavery gradually because they were addressing the compensation. the property, having abolished property rights, you know, and without threatening other private property. so they abolished slavery without compensation and they dropped the colonization which had been central to emancipationist discourse from thomas jefferson to abraham lincoln and they provided for the military recruitment of people of african descent both of whom were slaves because of rich americans were not allowed to serve either in the united states army or the state militia because of the connection between military service and citizenship claims. oliver and the emancipation proclamation

. from illinois. steve from new jersey. >> that's for sure, steve. thanks for pointing it out. from dayton, ohio. from massachusetts.
to see how they can vote on something before newier's eve. >> marty, to steve's point, one of the major source of pain is the payroll tax cut. when they negotiate a deal, unfortunately it's going away. i was taking a look at something nate was writing as he wants to do, talking about the numbers here. specifically looking at the break down of who was in the house. between tea party republicans of which there is a lot and blue dog democrats of which there few and liberal democrats. he is basically making the point that if boehner does want to stick with the principal that he is going to pass something with a majority of his caucus, he will need a significant amount of support or some support from liberal democrats, not just blue dogs. what kind of a deal could realistically get to the house that holds together most of the caucus and also brings along some liberal democrats? >> that's where we are stuck. if we can figure this out, you know that john boehner and nancy pelosi and the wimps in the chambers are trying to figure it out. the right combination of the income threshold for tax inc
to fight for it. joining me now is congressman steve coen, democrat from tennessee and former pennsylvania governor, ed rendell. thanks to both of you for being here tonight. >> good evening, rev. >> nice to be with you. >> congressman, let me start with you. the president said nobody can get a hundred percent of what they want. but you've seen the right wing republicans in the house. they don't seem to get that. >> no, they don't. they're an immature group, politically. many of them were new to politics in 2010 and they came with the idea of no revenues and no taxes at all. and they -- you think you can see what the president has had to deal with for the last two years, people have questioned the president and his working across bipartisan ways. he's tried to be bipartisan, but this group is rigid, immature. rich mcconnell wanted to beat the president. now, the president can't be beaten. they came to washington to change washington, but their main concern is reelection and they don't want anybody saying you raised taxes or you tax anybody, even the uber rich. >> but congressman, i want to
to the president, david axelrod joins the conversation. also "morning joe" economic analyst steve rattner. keep it right here on "morning joe." >>> we do not intend to spend -- send members home after this vote. we want to stay here. we want to avoid the fiscal cliff from happening. and again, i think that the decision is for the white house and the senate democrats to come join us so we can avoid the tax hike on american people and avoid the fiscal cliff. >> no vote today? >> nope. >> will there be a vote tomorrow? >> nope. >> are you ditching plan "b"? >> will there be a vote today? >> no. >> what happens next, mr. cantor? >> all right. it's a little bit of a contrast there. a live look at the white house. welcome back to "morning joe." harold ford jr. still with us. and joining the table is former treasury official and "morning joe" economic analyst, steve rattner. also with us from chicago, former senior adviser to president obama, now the director of the institute of politics at the university of chicago, david axelrod. good to have you all at the table this morning. all right. >> david ax
with a glass of bubblyf but how do you know which champagne is best for you? steve stopped by with some tipss >> do you have a champagne taste on a beer budget, or coca-cola budget? or looking to splurge on a nice bottlea of bubbly to ring in tn new year. either way, your options are endless, and we will talk to th man who can tell us about the endless options. steve isle with paul's wine and spirits. he talks about this and the chic ways to celebrate. >> either way you want to do it. >> we're going to start off.rt if you're on a budge get. how should you handle this. >> all champagne and sparkling wine is not chapel -- so we'llso started over here. spanish kava, not as complex as real french champagne, underch $15, you can find a lot of great values. next we have american.e we have one from new mexico, so sparkling wine can be made from anywhere in the world. we have california, these are 14 to 15, $16.$1 >> okay. >> and we have the most popular sparkling bind right now in then -- wine right now. this is the grape from italy, light, it's festive, it's great for mimosa is iss. and then we ha
me at the table is westin solutions, inc a company doi doing. steve coll and president of the new american foundation and a staff writer at the new yorker magazine. francis bernanke and dan dicker is it still at the table. i'm really curious about how this boom is going to transform american politics. i'm particularly concerned about climate, right? it seems to me that we are basically in certain ways headed in exactly the wrong direction, but also at the same time headed in the right direction. here's what i mean by that. k carbon emissions are the lowest in the country since 1992. that's largely because every btu of natural gas you substitute for coal, you get 50% of the emissions. at the same time we have this foss fill fuel boom, we have this decline in the carbon emissions. i wonder how should i feel from an environmental perspective about these two facts that seem to be in deep tension with each other? >> i think the main thing, chris, is we have to get on a path way to reduce emissions over time. natural gas is better than coal, but it does not get you there. you have to ha
in sight just more of the same way blame game . e week before the taxes are going to sky rocket. steve is live in washington. >> good morning, gretchen and everybody. washington is shut down for the christmas holiday . when everybody does come back to town, the ball will be in the democrat's court because speaker boehner was unable to bring his on board. for the plan b. >> onous is on senator reid and the president to come up with a solution and present it to the house and get back to the bargaining table. >> now the president has insisted on a tax hike for the healthy but wants that at $250,000 or $400,000 and not one mill yen and even though the president scaled back his expectations for what can be accomplished some democrats said a grand bargain shouldn't be that hard to reach. >> we ought to take peeker boehner and the president's last offer and split the difference and it would be a package 2.6 trillion can couple that with 1.1 trillion and that would be close to four trillion needed to stabilize the debt and bring it down. >> the president and members was congress will return to
teresa sullivan and steve case, the founder of aol. >> we have instructed the panel is not to say hello to friends and family, so i will do it for them. hi, mom, i kids. tonight's keynote concludes a series of discussions about the problems, prospects, and policies are running high skilled immigration policy in the u.s. this morning at the miller center washington d.c. office, we have brought to the panelists from law, economics, and the private sector to debate and deliberate about a range of topics related to high skilled immigration. our discussion was framed by which isng at s.aessay, available on the miller center web site. our first session this morning, they compared the united states h1b policy to the blue card initiative and the european union. gary friedman focused on the public's underlying immigration policy and concluded that immigration policy in the u.s. is reasonable and rational, given the structure of the u.s.'s interest group-based system of political expression. susan marcum of georgetown university's institute for international emigration argued, and many agreed, th
your crystal balls and tell us, the next 12 months, what will happen on this issue? steve? >> i am cautiously optimistic. six months ago, it passed with broad bipartisan support. with they came together on that legislation because it was important to provide sbrures with capital even though they said nothing could get done, something did get done. the good news people recognize the issue is important and there is a general agreement on the solution around high skilled immigration. the problem is is the politics and the economy and jobs have been prumped by the politics of immigration. i think there are four paths. one could be the pass the senate not be taken up in the senate. there is a lottery that would flult raising the overall level of immigration. if there was an agreement to include that that bill could be passed. a second option which is what the president has ind indicated he favors is to link high skilled immigration with the dream act. so it is a broader solution around immigration. the third would be to say this deals with the 50,000, this deals with a million five. the
of incidents. host: ok. caller: which is what you saw on the tape right there. look at steve winn, a gentleman defamed him and said that he was going to kill this person. steve winn was going to kill this person. now steve francis, please, drugs kill people. host: all right. dre, this is the "washington journal." she writes -- host: carol in minneapolis, minnesota. what's the role of the federal government or the state of minnesota? caller: well, i feel that the state and the federal government need to have a hand in what's going on with mental health because i see people every day in the streets of minneapolis walking the streets of minneapolis and they're mentally ill. they're talking to themselves about things and nobody's listening and nobody's seeing these things, but i for one, am, and until something is done, then the unmanageable -- unimaginable will happen and that was the unimaginable that happened the other day. host: ok. ray, rockwood, tennessee, independent caller. go ahead, ray. caller: i have got a question that nobody has ever said on tv i would like to have an answer. i want t
? joining me now, senior economics writer or for "the wall street journal" steve moore. steve, thanks for making it in today. >> hi, jamie. we're having a white christmas in chicago. so it is a lot of fun. jamie: i know chicago, burr. the numbers are also pretty chilling for retailers who do what percentage of their business during the holiday season? >> you know, those months of november and december are absolutely crucial, jamie, for the retailers. about 40 to all their business all year is done in those two holiday months. so it's, not very good news that the retail numbers came in, you called them lackluster. and that's probably putting it charitiably. this was the worst year since 2008. it is actually, surprising, jamie, because if you look at some other indicators, consumer confidence had actually bumped up a little bit in the last couple months. we have, i wouldn't read too much into this because other indicators of the economy are looking up right now. jamie: so do you think it's an anomaly that it isn't going up? is it an indication if we go over the fiscal cliff there's conc
hope. lawmakers took to the fund shows to defend their positions. steve centanni live with the latest update. >> still no agreement but you plenty of talk as the two sides aired differences in the fiscal cliff delate. after john boehner called off the push for a so called plan b saying the ball is now in the democrat's court there has been no movement towards any kind of deal. the wealthy and republicans want spending cuts. one key republican says what we really need is leadership. >> if you want leaders you have to lead. the president has been a pathetic fiscal leaders. he produced three budgets and can't get one vote for the budget. i would vote for revenues including tax rate hikes even though i i don't like them to save the country from becoming greece. but i am not going to set aside the $1.2 trillion in cuts. >> the president meantime is in hawaii, but he spoke out on the fiscal cliff at the white house on friday before leaving town for christmas. he scaled back his goals for the few remaining days between now and the end of the year. he is focusing now on the middle class tax c
. the downgrading of the credit rating doesn't seem to have had any effect. lori: but, steve, we have the debt ceiling for a purpose, right? to avoid overspending. yet it doesn't seem to be doing its job. how can we get meaningful spending cuts, preserve entitlements back into the dialogue of this fiscal cliff debacle? >> well, i don't think we have it to encourage fiscal responsibility so much as we have it because it's required for congress to authorize borrowing money to pay our debt and deficit obligations. it's, the way i look at it, it is a mere constitutional technicality and we should raise it. i would like to make one point about on the downgrade issue that he just talked about. if we go over the fiscal cliff, that would certainly be no reason for a downgrade because we would be cutting the deficit and the debt. lori: right. >> but if we kick the can down the road here and don't do anything with a short-term solution, then i think it would be reasonable for the debt, excuse me for --. lori: another downgrade. >> for us to be downgraded, excuse me. lori: let me send it back over to you

gone crazy. joining us now is steve kornacki from salon.com, host of "the cycle." good to have you i don't here. >> great to be here. >> some republican-controlled states, including ohio and virginia are talking about making their state vote for president the same way they vote for congress and the legislature. which right now is set up in a way that dramatically favors republicans, no matter how people vote. is it feasible that they could do this? >> it is feasible, sure, because they have the power. we're talking about states here where you control where the republican party controls the governorship and controls both houses of the legislature. so they have the power to do it. the significance, i literally have some back of the envelope calculations. >> that's an actual envelope? >> with some calculations on it. i think it's worth pointing out. you have four statious mentioned, pennsylvania, virginia, michigan, ohio. right now this year in the 2012 election, the electoral vote count from those four states was 61-0, obama. he won all four states. if you get a vote for every congress
